Art Safari

Art Safari

You may have been on safari, but have you ever been on an art safari? Well, here it is! Zebra Hills Safari Lodge is a Big 5 destination set in the heart of South Africa’s East Coast. The Zululand Rhino Reserve is a 23 000 hectare sanctuary to a plethora of wildlife and bird species, covering landscapes of rocky outcrop to riverine forest – the perfect destination for your art safari!
What better time and place to double up on a luxury safari holiday and trying a new experience. An extraordinary lodge experience in the heart of Africa’s wilderness, what more could you ask for? The early morning game drives afford one the ideal opportunity to stop and sketch under the expert guidance of internationally represented artist, Brent Dodd.
